Quotes

"We are going to cover up the highway and build a new neighborhood out of thin air" said John Rosenthal, president of developer Meredith Management Corp
"He's been a big supporter for a very long time long before he was mayor, and it's always seemed like a no-brainer," Rosenthal said Monday. "He just never understood why there was resistance at all."
"Our goal would be to preserve the building's position as one of the more affordable entry level hotels but add an exciting vibe that would appeal to young travellers" said Percelay
"I think we've seen an absolute major transformation in Boston as a market. We've been yakking for 30 years about Boston being a world-class city" Friedman said. "It's actually happening now."
